Partagas Legend cigars pay homage to the legendary men who helped guide General Cigar blender Johnys Diaz on his journey to become a master of tobacco.
Partagas cigars have long been one of Cuba’s best-selling brands. But the ones offered in the States are a non-Cuban version made in the Dominican Republic. That’s where company founder Ramon Cifuentes ultimately put down his bags after he turned down Castro’s offer to head up national cigar operations and emigrated to find his destiny elsewhere.
Now, others like Mr. Diaz carry the torch, but they always look back to those who helped them find the way. For Diaz, it’s men like Jaime Partagás, Ramon Cifuentes, Edgar Cullman Sr., Daniel Nunez, and Benji Menendez.
To find suitable leaves for Partagas Legend cigars, “Jhonys selected tobaccos from Connecticut, the Dominican Republic, and Honduras, all of which have historical significance to the legends of Partagas.” Thus, we get a blend that includes a Dominican long-filler, a Honduran binder, and a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper.
The blend of the Partagas Legend smokes up with a nice punchy pepper, thanks to the Honduran binder. The flavor rests on an earth foundation but also shows intriguing notes like creamy root beer with the influence of the Connecticut Broadleaf tobacco. Expect to get an appropriately complex and enjoyable smoke out of this stick.
Diaz has done his forefathers proud.
